The young person’s online bookstore ChildrensBookstore.Com is celebrating the publication of the single volume edition of Andrew’s four book series The Homelanders.
If Alfred Hitchcock had ever done a young adult story, it might well look like The Homelanders a four novel series by Andrew Klavan now published in a single volume. The story has elements of “North by Northwest” and “The Fugitive,” but its central character is a typical high school student named Charlie West.
We recognize that it is often difficult to find past-paced fiction that is appropriate for a younger audience. Klavan’s books are very well-written and do not lack in the excitement department. All this while keeping the content and the subject matter suited to a teen and pre-teen audience.
The Homelanders is an exciting thrill ride with plenty of action and an appealing character at the center of the mystery. It is highly recommended for proficient readers who love action and adventure.
The post is here, and links will give you a chance to buy the series.
Andrew’s essay “The Crisis in the Arts: Why the Left Owns the Culture and How Conservatives can Begin to Take it Back,” is now available free at the link. Andrew has long argued that an artistic culture that is one-sided politically short-changes the public and prevents fresh ideas from coming to the surface. In this essay, he argues that conservatives have to stop acting as censors and scolds and begin to embrace a culture that depicts all facets of human life.
Thomas Nelson publishers have released the cover art to Andrew’s new young adult trilogy MindWar. The series is set for publication this July. The novel tells the story of a crippled high school quarterback who is enlisted by the government to have his mind injected into a life-or-death video game. Here’s the publisher’s copy:
Rick’s high school football team couldn’t be stopped when he was leading them as their quarterback. He was going to Syracuse on a scholarship. But then his dad abandoned them and a terrible accident left him crippled.
Certain his old life is completely lost, Rick spends months hiding away in his room playing video games. He achieves the highest scores on so many games that he’s approached by a government agency who claims to be trying to thwart a cyber attack on America that would destroy the technological infrastructure of the entire country. The agents say that the quick-thinking of a quarterback coupled with Nick’s gaming experience make him perfect for this assignment. The problem is that there are no extra lives and this isn’t just a game . . .
Andrew’s latest novel for adults, A Killer in the Wind, has now been released in a trade paperback edition. The novel tells the story of former NYPD cop Dan Champion, currently working on a small town force as he tries to recover from the case that nearly killed him. When a mysterious woman washes up on the shores of the Hudson River, Champion is swept into a case that takes him into the heart of darkness, both in the outside world and inside his own mind. Kirkus Reviews said the novel “Evokes the gritty classics of Cornell Woolrich and Jim Thompson while spinning its own brand of hard-boiled psychological suspense.” Publishers Weekly called it “taut, frightening.” The new paperback contains a correction to the end of the novel that did not make the hardcover edition.
